Project scope and activities
The project activities are relevant for all industries in Europe, especially the chemicals, non-ferrous metals, cold storage, steel, and water treatment sectors. These five sectors with 302 TWh/year represent about 10% of the electricity consumption in Europe.
The project work is applicable to all European countries, with particular attention to Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK. These countries have traditionally had important industrial production and together they represent more than 65% of the EU population and almost 80% of all the installed wind and PV capacity. These figures allow us to balance between a manageable effort of working with 6 target countries and still having an important impact on a European level.
